On Wednesday, September 20th, Reinhardt hosted the Year Of Cuba Festival as part of their annual “year of” program. This year, the university is honoring Cuba.

Sounds of traditional Cuban music filled the air while multiple organizations representing Reinhardt’s majors set up booths around the Donor Plaza. These booths provided information and refreshments regarding the traditions of Cuba and it’s society.  Activities such as salsa dancing, corn hole, and arts and crafts were among the things available for students to participate in while attending the gathering. The overall goal of the Year of Cuba Festival was to expand campus knowledge and appreciation of the island’s people and culture and inform students of the impact that the culture has had on the world throughout history. A gallery of pictures from the event has been included below.
